Geography Field Trip to Iceland 2013
Iceland, the land of fire and ice and home to an amazing array of geographical marvels is the destination for forty students and five staff at the end of this term. The trip begins on Tuesday 16th July and returns on Friday 19th July. During the four days the students will experience towering waterfalls, pristine glaciers and slumbering volcanoes, all set in one of the most remote and unspoilt locations in Western Europe. The group will also visit volcanic beaches, tour a geothermal power plant and swim in the world famous Blue Lagoon geothermal springs. With strong connections to our courses on coasts, rivers, plate tectonics, energy issues and cold environments, the trip offers a great opportunity for the students to experience firsthand what they have learnt in the classroom and to develop their knowledge and understanding for their upcoming examinations.
An information evening for all the students as well as their parents/guardians who have been allocated places on the trip will be held on Thursday 13th June between 6 and 7pm in the main School Hall. All members of the trip are reminded to bring their completed trip form 5 documents as well as a copy of their passport details. A letter covering these arrangements and requirements is being sent to all trip members.
